Some days all of us want to forget about all of the obligations, worries and cares in our lives; even if just for a night. With that being said, though, who really wants to be forgotten? At the crux of the matter, this is the central set of feelings that drives New Zealand singer/songwriter and pianist Robinson’s new single ‘Don’t You Forget About Me.’
Co-written and produced with Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, Zara Larsson) and David Sandström (of Refused), ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ arrived as the final act in a foggy, jetlagged week of intensive song writing and production in Los Angeles last year. Born out of late night mindfulness in her hotel room ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ reframes Robinson’s take on the classic rock and folk song writing of Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, and Jeff Buckley as after-midnight electronic pop that ripples with sentiment and reflection.
Since 2015, Robinson has spent time song writing and recording in studios throughout New Zealand, Australia, the UK, and the US with respected producers and songwriters like Fred Gibson (Ellie Goulding), Daniel Ledinsky, and Adam Argyle (James Bay, Ella Henderson). A restless creative who has written since her teenage years in Nelson, Robinson writes and sings to express feelings, experiences, and ideas that can’t be easily articulated in everyday conversation. She’s put her ten thousand hours in, and as ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ suggests, she is more than ready to share her music with the world.
